Northeast Wilderness Trust is applying for a second renewal of accreditation through the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance. The land trust accreditation program recognizes land conservation organizations that meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever.

The Commission invites public input and accepts signed, written comments on pending applications. Comments must relate to how Northeast Wilderness Trust complies with national quality standards. Comments on Northeast Wilderness Trust’s application will be most useful by July 15, 2020.
